Crafted from centuries-old red birch harvested from the bottom of Lake Superior, this Craviotto Timeless Timber snare is truly, literally one-of-a-kind.

During the logging boom of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, some of the logs being transported through the northeast waterways sank to the bottom of the lake, where the icy temperatures and low oxygen content kept them perfectly preserved for over 100 years. In the 1990s, many of these logs—from trees already hundreds of years old at the time of their submergence—were harvested and made available to discerning and sustainability-conscious craftspeople for premium grade furniture, flooring, and musical instruments.

This 5.5x14" solid red birch shell was steam bent and shaped by Johnny Craviotto in 2003, and outfitted with 10 nickel plated tube lugs, nickel-plated hoops engraved by John Aldridge, and a Nickelworks piston throw off. Includes the original, unplayed heads. Original bag is not present.

The drum is number 9 of 10 made like it, and the nameplate is still blank, and notes the designation as part of the Steve Maxwell collection. Don't miss the chance to add this very special snare drum to your collection.

The "Very Good" condition rating is due only to some light tarnish present on the hoops and lugs.
